Places To Ride
- Blue Hills Reservation
- This is a scan of the map portion of the DCR's pamphlet Mountain Bicycling in the
Blue Hills. Bill Boles of the Blue Hills Trail Watch has highlighted the easiest
trails in yellow. The pamphlet is available at the Reservation Headquarters. Trails open
to mountain bikes are printed in black. Trails closed to mountain bikes are printed in
red. Please take this into consideration if you print this map on a black-and-white
- Borderland State Park
- This is a scan of the map portion of the DEM quide. Please also see the associated key portion.
- Erving State Forest - 100% - 17K and Erving State Forest - 200% - 46K
- This is a hand-annotated map of Erving State Forest. Two copies are available. The 200%
scan provides better resolution.
- This map was produced from hand-drawn map by Bill Boles. It covers the Franklin section
of the F. Gilbert Hills State Forest. The map was manually traced with a paint program to
produce a color map indicating trails types by line thickness and color.
- F. Gilbert Hills State Forest, Foxboro
- This is a scan of the DCR map of the area. I highlighted the MTB loop in yellow. At the
park headquarters, a large map is posted with hand-drawn detail of the various trails
specified for various usages. The free map available in the box at the headquarters, which
is the orginal for this scan, doesn't have the MTB loop as clearly marked. Looking at the
hand-out map in conjuntion with the large map, I was able to mark the hand-out map with
the MTB loop. Note that with the exception of the portion of the MTB loop that corresponds
to Wolf Meadow Rd., the marked MTB loop at Foxboro is quite challenging. Knowing where the
loop corresponds to the map may help you ride only a portion of the loop should you wish
to complete part of your ride on the dirt roads.
A ride on the MTB loop may be extended
by turning right on Messager Rd. at point 11 on the map, taking a left onto the Warner
Trail, proceeding North, then West, then South, and returning to the multi-use trail back
at Messager Rd. just Southwest of point 11.

- The Friends of Lynn Woods publish an excellent map of Lynn Woods. This 11"x17"
color map is printed on both sides, one side with the map and the other with interesting
information and history on Lynn Woods. We can only scan up to 8.5x14" so We are not
able to accurately reproduce this map exactly. We''ve tried to provide a few different
scans that may be useful. If you can't get your hands on the full map, one or more of
these scans made aid you in finding your way on the trails at Lynn Woods.
The first scan
is a 50% reduction in black and white. The only way the entire map could be scanned at
once was to first reduce it by 50% via photocopying. This technique resulted in a loss of
resolution. The trails are visible on this map however many of the trail names and
point-of-interest names are, for the most part, illegible.
The second scan shows the center 8.5x14" section of the map at full size in color.
This area contains all the trails although the surrounding area and the legend are not
The last two scans represent the entire map in color and at full size but in two
pieces. The first scan shows the Northwest portion. The second scan shows the Southwest

the one you feel like printing. The 150% and 200% maps will not fit on one 8.5x11"
sheet of paper. If you print one of these as is, set your printer in landscape mode and
print on more than one page. Since most printers have a resolution much finer than
computer monitors, a reasonable print of the entire map may be obtained by printing the
